Sandwich Bread

I used to own a couple of sandwich bread pans which were custom maded in Malaysia and thought that these type of pan which is called - Pullman Pan" will be readily available here, so did not bring them with me. Yes, they are available but not readily, they are available online and so, so expensive that i for one, cannot afford to own one. If one wish hard enough, your wish will be granted, they are sold in Malaysia and so, so inexpensive. My daughter Sharon bought me one and it made the best sandwish bread according to Renee, who loves bread. Since she loves bread, i will try and make the bread as nutricious as possible. I will add in pumpkin, squash, sweet potatoes and zuchini and this is how i get her to eat vegetables.

1 cup mashed/puree cooked pumpkin/sweet potatoes/squash/zuchini
1 egg
2 tbsp sugar
1 1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp milk powder
3 cups bread flour(you can replace a cup with whole wheat flour)
1 1/4 tsp instant yeast
1/2 - 1 cup of milk(depending on how wet the vegetable is)

Put the ingredients according to the order as typed above in the bread-machine bowl.
Start the bread-machine using the dough function.
Add water enough to make dough into a ball.
When dough has finished cycle, remove and punch down.
Grease bread-pan and scale dough - 1 lb 4 ozs dough for 8 inch x 4inch x 4 inch.(dough should be 1/3 of the bread pan), and fold to fit the bread pan.. Cover with the lid but leave 1/2 inch gap so that you can see that the dough rising.
Let the bread proof until cover with a warm towel. When the dough has reached the top about 1/2 inch away from the lid. Close the lid tightly and turn on the oven 350F. When oven is preheated, put bread to bake for 30 minutes. Remove lid and continue to bake for another 15 - 20 minutes(depending on how brown a crust is desired).
Leave to cool for 10 minutes before removing bread from bread pan.
Cool bread totally before slicing.
